Mezzanine and the International Documentary Association (IDA) present Fox Maxy’s GUSH. (2023, U.S., 71m, DCP)

Los Angeles premiere! Filmmaker in person!


In her first feature, acclaimed video artist Fox Maxy uncorks a deluge of images captured and created over nearly 10 years. Drawn from Maxy’s personal archives, *Gush* is a kaleidoscopic swirl of moments that exists outside of common genres and forms, evoking through recalled words and rhyming visuals the experience of trauma and recovery. Using a mix of original documentary footage, archival television clips, animation, and other formats, sometimes layered on top of one another, Maxy interrogates sexual violence and personal freedom in a highly intimate, deeply personal style. *Gush* provides a space for celebrating confidence, community, and joy—even and especially amidst the sensory barrage of contemporary living.

Official Selection: Sundance Film Festival, New Directors/New Films, 2023
